CSS Dropdown menu

Posted on 2011-09-08

I have created a horizontal dropdown menu with css.  However, I'm not sure how to write the second part of the dropdown.  Instead of the second level dropingdown vertically, I want it to drop down a spread out, inline horizontally under the main menu choices.


Open in new window

Does that make sense?

I try not to reinvent the wheel when I don't have to.  Have you seen Suckerfish menus? The examples are at the very bottom of the page. Fully tested, compliant and very easy to implement.

@LZ1 There was not 1 example on that page that refers to the type of menu style I am trying to create.  Did I miss something?

A quick Google search will turn up hundreds (thousands? millions?) of cross-browser, debugged menus.

If you're a jQuery fan, you have perhaps hundreds more from which to choose.
